introduction

S

ituated on the Canadian Badlands, Vulcan County has a rich and fascinating history rooted in the area’s development as the seminal agricultural growing and shipping centre in the Canadian Prairies. With history spanning thousands of years, First Nations and later early settlers adapted to its open, rugged prairie landscape. With the development of communities beginning in earnest commencing with the building of rail lines through the area, buildings and settlements were slowly established. The communities in Vulcan County have a healthy stock of their historic built environment intact within County limits and building and community histories have been well documented through previous provincial surveys, local history books, publications, archival collections, local history blogs and oral history accounts. This project was led by the Vulcan Business Development Society (VBDS); it was VBDS that recognized the need to formally document historic resources. The VBDS has been actively documenting the local history of Vulcan County through various sources including the Vulcan County History Blog. Because of the large number of communities involved and invested in the process, VBDS decided to combine a Heritage Survey and Inventory into one concise program for 2011-2012 to ensure that every region was represented fairly. The initial step for any heritage program is a Heritage Survey. A Heritage Survey provides an inclusive database of information that identifies the historical buildings,

cultural landscapes, archaeological sites and structures in a community. The Heritage Survey serves as a baseline of information for historic sites in Vulcan County and provides Vulcan County with information on the history and value of local buildings for local historical and genealogical research. For this project, 100 sites sampled throughout Vulcan County area were added to the Heritage Survey. From this list of 100 sites, a refined list of the top tier of resources, known as a Places of Interest List was created. Twenty-one sites from the Places of Interest List were selected to add to a Heritage Inventory, which is a comprehensive listing of evaluated heritage sites. The sites were evaluated using a Statement C o m p o n e n t s o f a H e r i ta g e M a n a g ement Program ( M H PP)

of Significance, which is the national standard for evaluating the heritage value of an historic site. The VBDS partnered with Vulcan County, the Town of Vulcan, and the Villages of Carmangay, Champion and Milo to meet the shared goals of the project.

The VBDS recently established a Heritage Advisory Board (HAB) and under the guidance of VBDS and its municipal partners, Donald Luxton & Associates was retained to undertake the project in partnership with the VBDS staff and the HAB. Over 200 sites were assessed during the field portion of the project, 100 of which were added to the Heritage Survey. It was decided that because all of the resources added at this stage represented the highest quality of resources in the County, that the Places of Interest List would be made up of these 100 sites. Twenty-one of these sites were evaluated for the Heritage Inventory. All of the sites selected for the Heritage Survey and Inventory and were selected by the consultant, Donald Luxton & Associates and vetted through the Heritage Advisory Board (HAB) and VBDS staff over several meetings throughout the project.

The community consultation undertaken during the Heritage Survey and Inventory project involved the efforts of the VBDS, the Heritage Advisory Board and a large group of dedicated community volunteers. The outcome of the project clearly identified that there exists, within Vulcan County, a general public that is highly supportive of and interested in heritage conservation. Through several meetings with the HAB, two Open Houses in the Town of Vulcan, and Council presentations with Vulcan County, Town of Vulcan, Carmangay, Champion and Milo, the process has identified that Vulcan County values its historic resources as an integral component of the County’s identity, sense of community pride and future development. The initiation of this heritage management program in Vulcan County is timely as it will ultimately help manage the pace of change for historic resources by guiding future development, fostering business development, creating awareness of heritage resources in the community, informing the tourism industry, helping

FINAL REPORT

to set goals for local heritage planning management and initiatives. The goal of Vulcan County’s Heritage Survey & Inventory is to provide the county with a comprehensive record of its heritage resources, to help the various communities in Vulcan County to recognize and become invested in its own history, and to begin the process of establishing an efficient countywide heritage management program. The Heritage Survey & Inventory project has also begun to identify ways in which current initiatives could be enhanced to ensure more effective stewardship of heritage resources and how the larger community can be a part of the future of heritage conservation in Vulcan County. Throughout the Survey and Inventory process, the county has fostered partnerships throughout the community that will celebrate Vulcan County’s rich history and heritage, assist in the future conservation of significant historic sites, and create increased value and investment in heritage.

ulcan County is a largely rural county made up of a diverse range of small towns and villages including the Town of Vulcan and the Villages of Arrowwood, Carmangay, Champion, Lomond, and Milo and the Hamlets of Brant, Ensign, Herronton, Kirkcaldy, Mossleigh, Queenstown, Shouldice and Travers. The county, established as a Municipal District in 1951, has a population of approximately 6900 people. The main industry in Vulcan County is agriculture, although there has been recent growth in tourism, geophysical drilling and oil and gas. Coal was an important resource in many communities in the past. Vulcan County has a total area of 545,000 hectares square kilometers. Surveys were focused on the major villages and Town of Vulcan as well as in the small hamlets. The survey crew utilized a number of resources to focus the survey portion during the available time to survey from August until November 2011: • •

• •

& Associates in 3 to 4 day stints between September and November 2011. Over 200 sites were surveyed over the two-month survey process, with additional sites added by members of the public and HAB until December 2011. Of the over 200 sites, 100 were added to Vulcan County’s Heritage Survey. The remainder were recorded for a future survey project or were not included due to demolition, major alterations or inability to locate due to poor locational data. The 100 sites are summarized in detail in Appendix A. One of the most important outcomes of this Survey is a ‘Places of Interest List’ (POIL). A POIL is a comprehensive list created through community feedback and research of the most significant heritage resources in a community. Through fieldwork, research, and discussions with the community and the HAB, it was decided to include all of the sites as the County’s POIL.

Provincial Survey forms from 1970s and 1980s; Community Open Houses – 2 meetings in the Town of Vulcan to collect information on sites in a particular area; Key sites identified by Heritage Advisory Board; Key sites identified by community members.

The surveys were conducted over four (4) trips consisting of three to four team members from Donald Luxton

he Heritage Survey involved the time, dedication, and effort of many different participants throughout the project. The project was completed with the assistance of the Province of Alberta’s Municipal Heritage Partnership Program (MHPP). MHPP was designed to assist municipalities manage their historic places from initial identification, through to evaluation and management. Support from the MHPP, for identification and protection of local historic places, consists primarily of cost-shared funding, guidance and capacity-building tools. This program was designed to help municipalities manage their historic places by providing opportunities for municipalities to access funding assistance, expertise and networks that will help them to establish or maintain a municipal heritage management program. The MHPP is part of a larger culture of conservation being fostered across the country through the National Historic Places Initiative. Since 1999, a pan-Canadian heritage program has been in development to help conserve the historic places of Canada. The provinces and territories of Canada, in collaboration with the federal government, have created a program to recognize and manage Canada’s historic resources. A national heritage register has now been established, The Canadian Register of Historic Places, which is available online at www.historicplaces.ca. Sites added to a community Heritage Inventory are added to this rapidly growing database of Canada’s key historic resources.

Vulcan County gratefully acknowledges the contribution of MHPP for undertaking this project

To carry out the work of community consultation, survey coordination, site documentation, and presentation, the Prairie Branch of Donald Luxton & Associates, Inc, were retained. Throughout the Heritage Survey and Inventory, the public was invited to participate in the two Open Houses (October 19 and December 6) in the Town of Vulcan or speak directly to VBDS or the consultant. The open houses were an important source of historical information and helped identify key historic sites in each of the areas within Vulcan County. The Open Houses garnered 8 and 10 participants, respectively for each meeting. A summary of meeting participants is available in Appendix B. The consultant worked primarily with Vulcan Business Development Society, consisting of Leslie Warren, Economic Development Officer and Cody Shearer, Economic Development Assistant and as well received assistance from Cassie Reece, Administrative Assistant. Rick Mah, Director of Corporate Services and Liza Dawber, Vulcan County Grants Specialist also assisted during the


meetings & public consultation

process. The consultant also worked closely with the Heritage Advisory Board (HAB), an advisory board to the VBDS on matters related to historic resources in Vulcan County. The HAB, consisting of 11 members, participated in regular Heritage Advisory Board meetings with the consultant and reviewed and commented on deliverables throughout the project. The meetings dates for this project are summarized below. Each meeting, (attended by approximately 11 HAB members), was approximately 3 hours for a total of approximately 132 hours of volunteer time for this project. This estimate does not include time spent in Open Houses, reviewing drafts and consultation / interviews with consultant:

VULCAN COUNTY

c

a r m a ngay is the oldest municipality in Vulcan County. C.W. Carman bought 1500 acres along the Little Bow River in 1904 to start one of the largest wheat farms in Alberta. He made a deal with the CPR and gave them half interest in the land to be used as a townsite. Carman was married to Gertrude Gay, and it was a combination of their surnames that created the town’s name. The post office was established for Carmangay in 1907. Surveyed town lots were sold by auction in 1909 – many to speculators from the east and the U.S. The Grange Hotel, the largest building in town and which still stand, was built by Peter McNaughton in 1909. Like many of the small towns in Vulcan County, Carmangay had to be moved when the railway tracks ended up being laid too far east from the town. So buildings were moved from the original town site to the east side of the railway right-ofway. The railway chose this spot for its siding because the Little Bow Valley narrowed at this spot – perfect to construct the substantial bridge that was necessary for crossing the waterway. The large

HERITAGE SURVEY & INVENTORY 2012

bridge was originally built of wood in 1911, and was rather famous for its size – one of the longest for its height in the country – but was changed to steel in 1928. That structure still stands today. At one time the town had seven grain elevators. In 1911, with the town only hosting three elevators, one and a half million bushels of grain were shipped from Carmangay. As with most western town, the period of 1909-1911 saw massive settlement a population boom. By 1911, the town had over 400 people. At the height of its population there were 700 people in the community, but by the 1930s this began to diminish. Telephones were brought in 1914. For a while the town had its own electric light plant on the river, but later electricity was provided by Calgary. In 1920 a huge fire destroyed the Bank of Hamilton, Miller’s Pool Hall & Bowling Alley, Collier’s Harness Shop and two restaurants. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited in May, 1939. The Carmangay Sun printed its last paper in 1940. As of the last municipal census (2007-2010) there are 273 people living in Carmangay.

h a m pion was originally known as Cleverville, named after founder Martin Clever, a local homesteader. The Cleverville Post office was established in 1907 but changed its name to Champion in 1910. That year was the same year the railway came to the area and the town both moved to be near the rails and changed its name to Champion.The Champion Chronicle, a weekly newspaper, began production in 1918 or 1919 and stopped printing in 1940. Street lights were installed in Champion in 1927. In 1991, the Movie “Leaving Normal� was filmed in Champion.

ilo is the closest community in Vulcan County to Blackfoot Crossing, a designated National Heritage Site which was the location of the signing of Treaty 7. There are many tipi rings in the area and it was very much used by the First Nations in the area prior to other people moving in. The Milo Post Office was established March 16, 1908, and was run out of the home of Milo Munroe who lived “down the road a stretch” from where the town of Old Milo was to be built. In 1909, the Aasgards had a store built at the Old Milo site – the true beginnings of the town of Milo. After that, other businesses opened: a garage, barber shop, insurance agency, blacksmith shop, Bank of Hamilton, pool hall, ice cream shop, meat market and telephone business. Like so many of the small towns in this area, Milo moved to the rail side when the C.P.R. came through in 1924. The village was incorporated in 1931 and celebrated 75 years in 2006. The town had two cafes (one owned by two Chinese brothers), two hardware stores, two grocery

HERITAGE SURVEY & INVENTORY 2012

stores, a butcher shop, a Beaver Lumber yard, two garages, a saddlery shop, and a Chinese Laundry. The Bank of Nova Scotia was built by Harry Deitz in 1927 (but have since been renovated), it the bank was robbed in 1980, and was filmed for a Scotiabank commercial in 1988. Lake McGregor, named after J.D. McGregor (a stockholder in the Grand Forks Cattle Company and the man who had the idea of a large-scale irrigation system), is a large recreational attraction in the Milo area and was created for the purpose of providing irrigation water to surrounding areas. The reservoir was constructed between 1909 and 1918, and water never reached the south dam until 1920. Many obstacles stalled construction, but eventually dams and flumes allowed irrigation of thousands of acres of land. A community hall was built in 1985 and the curling rink expanded in 1998. The last train through Milo was in April, 2003 and the rails were removed from the town at that time.

ulca n: The Town of Vulcan was settled beginning in the 1900s with the high agricultural potential in the area. Named after the God of Fire, the town was surveyed in 1910 by a surveyor who was fascinated with the community’s positioning at the highest elevation point in in the area. The Town of Vulcan was a primary shipping point for grain in southern Alberta for many years and was known as having the largest capacity for grain storage in Canada. Vulcan’s ‘Nine in Line’ featured nine grain elevators along the train tracks east of town.

na sta si a was the railroad siding near a small Doukhobor colony established in 1926 about 10 km East of Arrowwood. The colony was called “The Lordly Christian Commune of Universal Brotherhood”. The siding and community was named after Miss Anastasia Holoboff, who brought a group of about 26 families (160 people) to the locale as a splinter group from the Brilliant, British Columbia Doukhobor settlement. The Depression seems to have caused the colony to fail – people started to drift away and in 1943 the school was closed. Most of the houses were sold and moved and Anastasia moved to Calgary where she lived until her death in 1965.

r a nt: In 1904, the town of Brant was founded by E.E. Thompson and located on E. 27-18-26-W4, but when the railway was built in 1910, most of the town buildings were moved to S.E. ¼ 16-18-26-W4. The town was named after the Brant geese that were plentiful in the area that season. In the early years of “Old Brant”, the community became quite large quite quickly.They had a Bank of Hamilton, the Temperance Hotel, Bertrand and Mooney Hardware, a pool hall, a blacksmith shop, a tin shop, a doctor’s office, a livery stable, a real estate office, a butcher shop, a school, and a post office (established in 1905 ). When the railway came in 1910-11, the hardware store, pool hall, tin shop and doctor’s office and some homes were moved to Blackie, but the rest of the buildings were moved to the new Brant townsite. After moving to its new location, Brant registered as a town in 1911. The railway built a depot in Brant shortly after the line was laid with the first train coming through in 1911 and mail being delivered by train after January 1, 1912. The Brant Post Office

building was constructed in 1914. [Of interest to note: the first mail deliveries to Vulcan came from the postmaster at Brant.] The Post Office building has since been moved to Heritage Park in Calgary where it serves as the dentist’s office. Fires happened regularly in small prairie towns, and the Brant was no exception with fires destroying several buildings in 1913 and 1914. Boom times for Brant, as for many towns, were the 1920s. Like many Alberta railway towns, the grain elevators and the stockyards were iconic, intrinsic entities in the town. For decades the grain elevators identified the community to anyone seeing them on the horizon. Where there were once 5 grain elevators, there now stands one. “The original Emerson School building (built presumably between 1904 and 1910) was moved into New Brant to be used as a church. It is still used as a church today. The Sharon School No. 1065 which was built in 1904 was moved and added to the church in the early 1950’s. These two buildings are probably the oldest ‘public buildings’ in the county of Vulcan.”

nsign: Named in 1909 after the Canadian Flag: “the Red Ensign”. For many years Ensign had a store and post office. The store, first built in 1911, took on various forms and owners and burned down twice in its history before being closed in 1968. The post office was also established in 1911, in conjunction with the store. In the 1930s the community focused around the store, the water pump, the railway station, the grain elevators, the garage, blacksmith shop and school. For a short time a small store and post office

operated out of an old garage, but this operation shut down presumably sometime in the early 1970s. The post office, having served the community for 74 years, and having moved to a residence after the store was closed, was shut down in 1986. During World War II an airport was constructed near Ensign – presumably for training specific to the war effort. Two hangars were built as well as facilities to accommodate 250 airmen, but the main use of the airport was for landing and takeoff practice for pilots from the Vulcan airport. There is no mention as to how long the airport was in use.

ir kca ldy is a Hamlet located 6.4km south of Vulcan and 12.9km northwest of Champion. Because of its proximity to these larger communities, Kirkcaldy never grew to any significant size and for most of its existence has had a population between 20 and 50 people. Kirkcaldy was named after Kirkcaldy, Forth, Scotland – a name for that locality which meant “church in the harbour of refuge”. The town was named in 1911 when the railway went through, although it is not clear whether there was any community at this location prior to the railway or whether it built up around the railway station. The post office was established in 1915 and remained operating until 1970. A school was opened in the hamlet in 1925, but later children were bussed to Vulcan or Champion. The small community was home to several businesses over the years, but the Mallory and Carnegie General Store seems to be the one that lasted the longest.

m

os sleigh: The name Mossleigh has been in use for the area since 1904 and was called such after the Moss family. Joseph Higginbotham Saxon Moss moved to the area in 1901 and began raising cattle and horses there. The name Mossleigh is a combination of the Moss last name and Joseph’s mother’s last name, Leigh. The community remained very small with just a school, post office and store. The C.P.R. came through the Mossleigh area in 1929/30 and it was at that time that the town really started to spring up. Several businesses were built, including: Segal’s Store, Troy’s Hardware, a butcher shop, Revelstoke Sawmill, a boarding house,

service station, hotel, dray business, café, grocery, barber shop, Mossleigh Motors and a blacksmith shop. Four grain elevators would eventually mark the skyline. The Arrowwood Bank of Nova Scotia had a sub-branch in Mossleigh from 1929-1932. The hotel was moved from Shouldice to Mossleigh in 1930 when the railroad extended beyond Arrowwood. The Mossleigh post office was first established in 1906, but was closed in 1918. The Post Office was re-established in 1930 with the coming of the railroad and continues in operation today. In 1949 a new curling and skating rink was built. Power came to the community in 1952, and water in 1963. Ten fires hit the town before 1982.

Q

uee nstow n: The first settler in the Snake Valley was Captain Dawson who established a ranch and colonization company there in 1887. Dawson arrived at his property in 1888 and named the area Queenstown after his native city in Ireland. The ranch was taken over by the Circle Ranch in 1890. At one time the ranch ran over 30,000 head of cattle between the Bow River and Macleod. The Queenstown school was built in 1907 and the post office established in 1908. Like many prairie towns, this community was moved in 1925 after the railway extended from Lomond in 1924. Between the 1910s and 1924, a Doukobhor village, named Krasivaya Dolina was located near Queenstown. In 1917, the Queenstown area was chosen for the establishment of a Greater Production Farm. It would seem that this only

lasted one season. The Bank of Nova Scotia set up shop in Queenstown in 1926, but it did not stay in business very long. The New Dale Hutterite Colony, located to the northeast of Queenstown, was established in 1948. For a short period, Queenstown boomed, but by the depression many businesses failed. The Second World War put a bit of life back into the town, but it seems this didn’t last long. When the County of Vulcan was formed in 1951, a new consolidated school was built in Milo and the one in Queenstown was closed down. After that, businesses drifted to Milo and Queenstown faded.In 1960, with fear of buildings becoming a hazard, the County demolished many of the abandoned business buildings. As of 1998, the only public building left in Queenstown was the Community Hall.
